Cleaning by Bluesea[_3_]
While giving some nibs a good soak in water before putting the pens away for a while, I noticed that one section had managed to stand on end with the nib pointing straight up. I thought the ink had cleared out and was going to shake it off, wick out the excess water, and set it out to air-dry,...

How do you hold your pen? by Aaron W. Hsu[_3_]
So, in the spirit of getting more discussion going here, I thought I would pose a little question that I always ask when meeting a fellow pen enthusiast in person: How do you hold your pen? For myself, I have a long history of pen grip introspection, so it is okay if you don't actively think about...

Why not just answer questions here? by bowcan
Hi everyone, Not trolling, just curious since I frequent FPN & have no compliants against it. (Just prefer to have more than one source of information & a.c.p-p is easier sometimes.) But I've noticed a trend here.

removing feed by Richard Wright
I want to remove the nib and feed section from a Waterman Tapewrite. The part is illustrated at: http://www.vintagewatermanpens.co.uk/ProdDesc.asp?cat=-1&id=w4983 I can see that the join to the body is a friction fit, and not threaded. What is the safest way of separating the illustrated part...

Next Mont Blanc? by Ed[_6_]
I finally purchased a Mont Blanc after all these years of trying other pens. In my opinion, it really is something special. I got the Chopin model. Now I am thinking of getting another one later this year. Any suggestions? I want to keep the price out of the stratosphere, but would be willing...

rOtring 900 pencil by [email protected]
Hello, I am new to google groups, but I decided to give it a try. I am looking for a rOtring 900 mechanical pencil. I recently found one on eBay, but it had already been sold by that time. I cannot find another one. I used to have one in high school, but somehow it disappeared. Nothing special,...

Parker Jotter by Even Stephen
Does anyone know if Parker slimed down the size of the Parker Jotter barrel? I hadn't bought a new Jotter in several years and it looks to me that besides using a thicker chrome accent at the bottom of the barrel the barrel itself might be thinner.

Long-term storage of ballpoints by Mike S.
Or, more specifically - how to keep the ink from drying out? I read a pen-related blog wherein the author suggested storing them in zip-lock plastic bags from which air was removed with a straw prior to sealing, in order to create a partial vacuum. No followup on whether it works. Thinking it...

Review: Moleskine San Francisco City Notebook by Bluesea[_3_]
My first impression overall is that this is a great little book with stitched-in pages. The paper strip-wrapper says there's a total of 228 acid-free pages. "San Francisco" is on the spine. The dimensions are 5.5" L x 3.5" W x slightly over 5/8" thick. Unfortunately, the maps aren't as good as...

Testing out the Spencerian Nibs from Pendemonium by Aaron W. Hsu[_3_]
So I bought a set of the Spencerian Dip Pen Nib Assortment from Pendemonium a while ago to augment my nib holder purchase of a black holder + italic bold nib. The bold nib was okay, but it definitely takes some severe learning if you want to use it with a delicate spencerian hand, so while I used...

My First Moleskine is Due to Arrive on Tuesday! by Bluesea[_3_]
Wanting to see for myself how much of the Moleskine raves are due to hype, but wary of reports of bleed-through and similar problems with fountain pens, I finally read a report that indicated that nib size larger than .6mm is the culprit. Since I prefer Japanese fines, I eagerly looked for a...
